Gregorian Calendar enslaves both indigenous and colonizers

The Gregorian calendar is a ridiculous anachronism.
Of course, in a 13-month calendar system, we’d also have a new additional month. The International Fixed Calendar system calls this extra month Sol and requires that it fit between the months of June and July. [A year with 13 Friday the 13ths?]
How does something called the 'the christian calendar' still exist in secular societies? Because 13 is not only a prime number and mark of the devil, it corresponds to the number of women's menses each year in a world where men still have control.
For Indigenous people across the globe, the natural world is a source of teachings about natural and universal laws. In understanding the interconnectedness of all things, we recognize that the cosmos– the sun, moon, stars, and other planets– affect us and connect us in undeniable ways. Some Tribal Nations have maintained teachings around solstice time, while others may be seeking to revive the teachings, practices and ceremonies that were forcibly taken from us.

Winter solstice begins another new year for us pagans. It occurs at 21:19 MST on Saturday, December 21.
If women ran every country in the world there would be a general improvement in living standards and outcomes, former US President Barack Obama has said. [BBC]
